I'd like to upload a much better copy of Roger Corman's The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) from a Legend Films DVD, released in 2008. Their website says that their black and white version is "restored and enhanced", as does the DVD case. The film has no copyright notice or any indication that it was restored, nor could I find a registration at USCO. I'm thinking the work done to make it is "sweat of the brow" work. There is a registration for their horribly colorized version. It seems to me to be OK to upload, but I'd like some input before doing so.

Sounds interesting. It seems to me that if it has no notice and no registration it should be ok, at least from what I've come to believe. I would hope that someone like Video Cellar responds to your post in the positive as I definitely would be interested in seeing this. Fingers crossed.

There's an even better print of LSOH on one of those old cardboard-sleeve dollar DVDs from Genius Entertainment. The Legend print has a big ol' film splice in the middle of Jack Nicholson's first line, basically ruining his entrance shot. The Genius Ent. print is every bit as clear and crisp if not moreso, but without the splice(s).
